Monday on Lake Effect: Belfast of the 70s, Pop Culture at the Racine Art Museum, LEGO Master Builder

Monday on Lake Effect:

Today on the show, Milwaukee is a divided city in many ways – but in the Belfast of the 1970s, the divisions were deep, formal and violent. Irish author Tony Macauley has written about growing up during part of the period known as The Troubles in a trilogy of memoirs. Then we explore an exhibit at the Racine Art Museum at which pop culture aficionados teach the docents about the art on display, and a conversation with LEGO Master Builder David Howard.
